You’ve likely seen a bumper sticker or a sign that reads “I’d rather be…” How would you fill in the blank? Golfing? Running? Fishing? Something else entirely? What activity do you enjoy most?

When you enter the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Lady in the Park sets the tone: you’re entering a place of beauty, peace, and tranquility. Notice how there’s room on the bench for you? How could anyone possibly resist?

Her nose — perpetually in a book — represents heaven to me. When I respond to “I’d rather be…” the answer is always the same. I’d rather be reading.

Now, it’s your turn. What would you rather be doing? If you’ve got more than one hobby, don’t be shy — you’re welcome to share the myriad ways in which you’d prefer to be spending time.

  1. I would rather be practicing yoga on the beach, meditating in nature or laying down on a sandy beach starring at the starry skies
